Nope, they tell you nothing. Just "5-12 months." I personally have medical issues that could delay things, but the majority of people waiting 7-8 months have absolutely nothing wrong with their applications (no medical or criminal or child custody issues).

Thank you! It's hard to orchestrate quitting work, moving and an immigration timeline of 5-12 months. I appreciate all the information you have posted on the forum. It's very helpful!

You're welcome. I agree - it's impossible to plan. We've decided I'm going over on an ETA after Christmas, which means I have a TON to get together and only a month to do it. Insane!

ww - This thread is for US applicants to discuss their visa timelines. Did you apply through the US embassy? Also, no one on these boards can give you information on the status of your own visa. You'd have to talk to Immigration for that. Also, if you just applied earlier this month, you're not likely to see your visa granted for at least several months.

I've read some information elsewhere this afternoon that I found really interesting. First, take this with a GIANT grain of salt. This came from other applicants, not professionals. Anyway, apparently Australia House (the London embassy) has sent out letters to multiple partner visa applicants who are still waiting. I'm not sure if it's ALL applicants, or only a subset (like only those from high-risk countries, or only those who are 309 applicants, or only those who are blonde, lol). No idea how they determined who got the letters. Anyway, multiple people on a UK-specific immigration forum have received one. These letters actually tell these applicants that visa processing times are about to get even longer, and they suggest applying for a tourist visa in order to be together while the application processes! Using a tourist visa to wait out a partner visa is, as we all know, technically something Immi frowns on, so I was really surprised to hear an embassy strongly suggesting it! Someone on that board said that they heard (again, this is like third-hand information, so... grain of salt!) the reason for the soon-to-be-even-worse processing times are the new government administration, and that they are currently examining all the partner visa subclasses to determine new regulations for each. Like I said - I have no idea if this is actually true, but if so... things could be heading in an even worse direction for partner visa processing times, at least for a while.

Obviously DC has sent out no such letter - and we don't even have verified that London did, just the reports of a few people - so I wouldn't be taking any different actions as a result of it, necessarily. Just wanted to share what I'd read.

I've applied in London, I haven't had letters through, but then my CO is on leave. I'll be sure to keep you guys posted if I do get anything.

Surely if they do change regulations / processes etc. this wouldn't effect existing applications?

Yes, I'd imagine it wouldn't, Missmontie, which is a good thing. But it could still cause time delays for processing.
